The Future of Android: Royalty Avoiders versus Royalty Collectors

Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha, via Unwired View:

I would bring up IP as a very important for differentiation (among Android vendors). We have a very large IP portfolio, and I think in the long term, as things settle down, you will see a meaningful difference in positions of many different Android players. Both, in terms of avoidance of royalties, as well as potentially being able to collect royalties. And that will make a big difference to people who have very strong IP positions.

Jha is suggesting two things. One, Motorola is in a very strong IP position. Two, in the long run Motorola will collect Android royalties.
